The Rams added Tre Mason in the draft and now they’ve created some room for him on the depth chart.

The NFL’s daily transaction report brings word that the Rams have waived running back Daryl Richardson.

Richardson was effective enough to run for 4.8 yards per carry during the 2012 season, but he dropped to 3.1 yards per carry last season. Richardson attributed his struggles to a toe injury he suffered early in the season, but it seems the Rams thought the presence of Mason, Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham was apparently enough to quash their interest in seeing if Richardson can rebound.

The Rams also waived tackles Emmanuel McCray and Graham Pocic. McCray was signed as an undrafted free agent earlier this week while Pocic was waived/injured at the end of camp last year with a shoulder injury.
